NASA's Curiosity rover took its final selfie on the twisting ridge of Mars, which has been home for more than a year for the robotic explorer, according to the American space agency. The coach-sized rover will now descend into the clay region of Mount Sharp after collecting new samples from Vera Rubin Ridge. Curiosity's favorite self-trick is not about selecting the most flattering filter but about stitching shots into a composite image, which creates the illusion that a compañero has taken a picture. The rover used this "selfies "approach before making it astonishing.

In this case, Jan captured this new image. 15, the final product consists of 57 different photos taken with the Mars Hand Lens imager by the rover. It is located at the end of the arm of Curiosity.

Different Rock Types Identified on Ridge

On the lower left side of the rover in the image, you can see the "Rock Hall "drill hole. The scene, due to a regional dust storm, is more poisonous than usual at this time of year. Since September 2017, Curiosity has been exploring the ridge. It now enters the so-called "lay bearing unit, "which sits just south of the ridge in a cavern.

This image was taken with curiosity as it was prepared to complete more than a year of scientific research at Vera Rubin Ridge, the renowned astronomer who discovered dark matter. As Curiosity journeys along the way, it makes a little science that should help geologists learn how the different types of rock found on the ridge meet with the barrier.
